Six days without any throwing up. Do I live in the same house or what? This is pretty amazing. The higher hydrocortisone dose seems to be doing the trick to keep the nausea at bay. It is also helping curb the head drops somewhat. A little. Okay, really she is still having quite a few--still at least 10 a day.

She did get the wind knocked out of her from being sick for what amounted to at least a month, in addition to the almost 2 weeks in the hospital. Her strength and stamina are zero. Always something, huh? I would appreciate your prayers that she would regain her strength and energy quickly.

Brother Andy was making a movie this week, and in the process came across another movie he had made last year for a college assignment. It had some footage of our family around the dining room table, celebrating my birthday. Annie was chattering throughout the whole thing, and then toward the end of the movie she began singing a song: "Shout to the north and the south, sing to the east and the west, Jesus is Savior to all, Lord of heaven and earth!" It's been almost a year since I've heard that sweet little voice, and what I would give to hear it again.


You have taught children and infants
to tell of your strength,
silencing your enemies
and all who oppose you. Psalm 8:2

Lord, thank You for Your faithfulness. Thank You for Your touch on this little girl and her family. Thank You for ministering to countless people through Annie's story. I pray for cont'd improvement as far as throwing up is concerned. I pray for stamina, strength, and continued language rehabilitation and development. I'm asking for miracles, Lord. Because You are in the business of doing miracles. Keep this family close to your breast, I pray. In Jesus' name. Amen.
